Bachelorette Cookies

Bachelorette Cookies

Good Monday Morning to you all!

How was your weekend?

I am hoping well. Mine always go too fast. Especially when you are doing things. Always seem to go quicker.

This weekend was spent mostly celebrating my Mom’s birthday, going to a bachelorette party, and looking for things for the new house.

Patrick and I made our first purchase this weekend. A new washer and dryer, since the house didn’t have them.

We went to a store closing out sale at Sears and got the appliances for a steal! It was a deal we couldn’t pass up.

I have a feeling this purchasing things for the house is never going to stop haha.

Anyways, my post today isn’t about the house. Don’t you worry there will be plenty of posts to come on the house.

Today’s post is about cookies for a bachelorette.

This past weekend one of my friends Jen had her bachelorette. The girls I play softball with (Nicole and Michele) ended up hosting the party because Jen didn’t want anything too extravagant.

Let’s just say, it definitely had some extravagant aspects (*ahem* an ice sculpture that was shaped like something that isn’t so much G rated, used for shots, and had written on the side “Go Nuts Jen”…use your imagination ;-) )

I was in charge of making the cookies. I didn’t want to do the normal pecker cookies like everyone ALWAYS does for bachelorette.

What is the best way to find ideas for things? Google of course.

I went to my trusty web browser typed in bachelorette cookies and found one of THE best cookie websites I have ever seen before.

It is called SweetSugarBelle. Seriously, go check it out. She has AMAZING tips on cookies, icings, decorating. All sorts of things. I am obsessed.

Anyways, so I used her idea for Lingerie Cookies. I decided to use the colors that Jen has for her wedding which was black and yellow. Sprinkled in some other colors as well ;-)

I also decided to try the sugar cookie recipe on that site to see if I liked it. I have been using the same cookie for my sugar cookies for a while so I decided to change it up.

I was pleasantly surprised! Also, I used the ingredients in the manner she laid out (in grams and not cups).

Sugar Cookie: (adapted from recipe)

  • 227 grams unsalted butter (2 sticks plus a 1/2 a tablespoon)
  • 175 grams confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 egg {room temperature}
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 400-425 grams all-purpose flour

Leave your butter out about 2-3 hours prior to making this dough. It will help you, I promise.

Preheat oven to 400º.

Cream you butter until it is light and smooth. Add in sugar slowly since it is confectioners sugar. Otherwise you will have one big old mess.

Add eggs and the vanilla and mix well.

Sift together your flour, baking powder and salt. Add this to the wet mixture a little at a time until all of the dry ingredients is well incorporated. You have have to use a spatula to scrap down the sides to make sure all the flour is incorporated.

Normally I refrigerate my sugar cookie doughs. However, this particular recipe doesn’t need to be refrigerated before you work with it. How awesome is that?

Divide the dough in half and roll out one 6″ round into about 1/4″ thickness. Cut the desired shapes for your cookies (I used a swimsuit cookie cutter and a heart shape cookie cutter).

I used the heart cookie for the bottoms and just cut off the tip.

Bake cookies for about 7-8 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, you do not want them to brown. Remove from sheets and let sit for about 2-3 hours before you start to decorate.

I baked my cookies 2 days before I decorated them and they were perfect!

Royal Icing:

  • 8 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 12 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • Food coloring of choice

Add the sugar and meringue powder together and mix until combined in mixture. I would advise sifting the sugar at least 2 times before you begin.

Add water and vanilla and beat for 10 minutes or until the icing has lost its shine.

I piped the outline of the cookies first with a #3 tip (consistency of toothpaste) and then let them set and then flooded the cookies by adding water into the icing so it becomes a little runny (consistency of shower gel).

*Sidenote: You can find amazing tips on icing on the website above. I didn’t use her recipe, but she has great tips on the consistencies of icing and when to use what kind*

Corset & Undies :-)

I think my favorite is the behinds. They definitely went over well at the party!

I was just happy to find a new website for inspiration! I hope someday I might be inspiration for others like that.

Have a lovely Monday!
